India’s representative at fencing in Tokyo Olympics 2021, got knocked out by France’s Manon. Bhavani Devi, who was representing India in the Tokyo Olympics, in the fencing category, got the taste of defeat.
She gave a good start to the game on the first attempt and became the first woman to get in this category as a fencer but couldn’t be able to continue the charm.
Bhavani Devi was pumped from the first ‘en grade’ and led all the way through.
However, she was knocked out by France’s Manon Brunet in a table of 32 match.
